This show began with two nice tunes from the famous Keystone 7-10-73 in which from two shows a live album was culled from. This period is arguably Garcia's peak period as a guitar player in which he was playing at a very high level with three totally different bands!! The 'blues' jam exemplefied how alot of the songs were born from with the "Blues For Allah" album, long open ended jams leading to a structured tune. The 5-15-70 is another fine example of 1970 GD and is dedicated to the memory of Ron McKernan(AKA Pigpen) in which 3/8 is the 37 year anniversary of his passing and ironically, the same day as the Furthur show at the Coliseum. See ya' next month!!
